IMO
1) B
idiom: mandate that

2) E
idioms:
a) require that (subjunctive)
B) require X to Y
In this case as the event happened in the past and is the fact/(not doubtful), subjunctive should not be used. Hence, E

Hey sudeep, the answers indeed are B and E.
Would you please elaborate a bit more on the use of subjunctive.
When to use them and when to avoid?
Thanks in advance.........
